Model: Deco M5
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 1.4.9 build 20200924 Rel 60170

Hello,

 

I got an issue with fast roaming with my android phones. ( Note 20 + Galaxy s9)

 

My phone transfer to the newer unit, wifi signal jumps but the internet connection is unstable.

 

The configuration is

* Modem as bridge mode connected to main deco (Router mode)

 

* Main deco connected to TP-Link Switch

 

* Switch connected via lan cable (Ethernet backhaul) to other deco.

 

It looks like I got wifi issues..

speed drops sometimes, fast roaming issues.

When connected to the deco with lan cable all works OK.

 

I kept the SSID and passwork of my old router.

 

Any idea what is the issue?

 

Thanks,

 

Nir

Disabling the fast roaming is not really an option.

That is the only reason I bought the deco m5

I need to be able to go around the house with a good connection and not breaking any meeting (VOIP).

 

Should the modern phoned like galaxy note 20 work well with fast roaming?

Not sure about phone compatiblity.  There are simply to many handsets out there with different hardware so its hard to say, but it is part of the troubleshooting steps that we ask customers to try to rule it out.
